New 2007 and 2008 Production Numbers

NEWS FLASH!

Just today, I got a revised production number for the 2007 GT/CS, and a new number for the 2008s. These are convertible and coupe models combined. (the breakdown on these numbers will be in my book).

The 2007 GT/CS Production number (you heard it here first) is: 8519.

The total production number for the 2008 GT/CS is:7427

People that bought the 2007 decals with the previous production number can return those decals and receive a new, correct one if you send me an SASE with $1 to cover costs. New decals for 2007 and 2008 can be bought for $10 each from me at: Paul M. Newitt, P.O. Box 2245, Davis, CA 95617.

considering car count vs population in the us, there probably as rare as the 68's.
in 20 years when have are wrecked half of that number, they will get quite rare.

I'd post the photo of the new decals, but in the upgrade, there is no way for me to attach an image...

hard to compute what you said............

if 3800 some odd 68's were made and 8600 some odd 07's are made then in 40 years there would probably be twice as many as 68's now.

factor in that in 08 they made a bunch as well.

I doubt the 07/08's will be as rare as the 68's in 40 years.......IMO

I think he's trying to look at percentages of GT/CSs vs standard Mustangs.

What will be incredibly rare is a survivor in original condition. It seems that most of the new GT/CS owners change things as soon as they get the cars home.

what i was wondering is if there were 4118 (gt/cs) or less that being some percentage of the 100,000 (all mustangs)+ or -
and there is 7427 2008's and if they built 200,000 (2008 mustangs) + or - it would be the same percentage
and no at this point i'm not sure if i'm making sense

Hi Ed,

I don't know right now, but it will be in the book. I'll have breakdowns by body style, too.

Thanks for asking.

Paul.

Hey chill Rick, Paul gets his info from Ford. He made up a decal from the info given him, when he found out there was a change he is making good on the new sticker. A buck for handling is no big deal.
Thanks Paul for all you do, even though there are some that don't, I do.

Rick, you've posted in 4 different threads about this, one of which had nothing to do with decals. Obviously you're upset, but I think you're making way too big a deal of this. Just get your full refund from Paul and move on. And if you're going to continue the discussion at least pick 1 thread and stick with it, not 4.

Thanks.
